Former Maharashtra Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) president Kripashankar Singh’s property in Panvel was attached by the Mumbai police on Tuesday. The leader is being probed for possessing assets disproportionate to his sources of income.
According to sources, the immovable property at Panvel, as mentioned in the PIL filed by social activist Sanjay Tiwari, is in the name of Narendramohan Singh, son of Kripashankar Singh.
Narendramohan has been mentioned as respondent no. 11 in the petition, which has been converted into an FIR for the investigation.
The said property is a shop (no. 15) on plot no. 399 in the Panvel Town Planning Scheme, measuring 1,100 sqft.
Following this, 250 acres of land at Wadapeth in Ratnagiri owned in the name of Singh’s daughter and son-in-law too would be attached, said sources. The investigators would then proceed to attach an 8,000 sqft commercial complex and a farmland in Jaunpur, UP which is in the name of Singh’s wife Malti Devi.
Meanwhile, the movable properties found from Singh’s 12 premises in Mumbai and immovable properties too will be evaluated by a chartered accountant. Sources said that forensic experts could be roped in at a later stage of the investigation. The experts could assist in scrutiny and evaluation of technical evidence such as handwriting, signatures and electronic data (computers and laptops) before the final comprehensive report on the findings is submitted before the high court on April 19.
